Beautiful interior and exterior.. Interesting, but sad history for previous owners. Some lovely pieces of art, family portraits and pieces of furniture. Also to see the fabulous carriage display and miniature railway system.

Very nicely restored palace. The family that lived in the palace were horse breeders, so if you are a horse lover, you will find the palace and grounds very interesting. Gardens are beautiful. There is also a carriage museum on site which is very interesting....More

We didn't spend much time here, just a quick stop on our way from Heviz, yet I can say the palace is wonderful from the outside. We walked a bit though the gardens that are behind the building. Everything is clean and clearly taken care...More

The palace is beautiful and there's a lot to see and learn about it. The guided tour is interesting although sometimes difficult to understand due to the acoustics of the halls. The garden is huge and also very nice, must see.

It´s a nice baroque building, with a neat park around it. The exhibition is not too big, and at the end there´s an interactive part about the history of the castle and the family it used to belong to.
